    ambiguous meaning

    Hi! What isthe exact meaning of the words in bold? The passage is from a political text. Infact It is from a telegram sent by an embassy and has a special shortened style.
    "Following is text DMPA Agreement agreed last night with UK subject finalclearance later today:"
    Thanks very much.

    As emsr2d2 has told you,

    You need to check that there is a space between words before you actually submit a post. When you copy/cut and paste text, it gets messed up here.

    Rover posted at 1447. Post 1 shows you edited it at 1455 yet there are still missing spaces and there are no words in bold.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Remember to put quotation marks around text you're writing about or set it in italics.
